-time high during obama's presidency. just 26% see the party in a positive light. the gop has lost the most ground in this last poll with self-described republicans. the tea party by the way has its lowest rating ever if you will. positive views of the tea party have dropped to just 23%. as the democrats haggle about the best strategy now for pushing gun control measures through congress, vice president biden promised the u.s. conference of mayors on thursday that the white house will not let up. >> we're going to take this fight to the halls of congress, go around the country making our case, and let the voices of the american people be heard. >> but biden said he has no illusions about how hard that fight will be and emphasized the proposal, quote, isn't just about guns. our poll shows 56% do want stricter gun laws. 7% say gun laws today are too strict. 35% don't want any changes. 20 years ago the last time that real changes were debated, in gun laws, a full 2/3 of the country wanted stricter gun laws. this time the public appears to be looking at a complex set of reasons behind the strin
the democratic party, so, you know, post-obama where does the party go from there? >> well, first, i still want to go back to howard for a second. >> you basically do not want to -- okay. >> he has a great point. we are back to the go-go clinton days of soft money, of donors giving millions, however much money they want. will they be getting sleepovers? are their companies getting grants? that is a good story. >> we know that -- >> they say they're disclosing the money. this will be voluntary. i hope they disclose everything they get. we have no way of checking. the second, on the split end side of the party, i think there are people like sharon brown of ohio who see this as, like, you know, this election really validated a liberal democratic party's priorities and the idea that you would then go and hand republicans kind of unwon gains on entitlement cuts and cracking down on unions and things like that seem insane. >> they get a dress rehearsal in the fight over entitlements if, many of the, the president and the republicans haggle. >> yeah, and there's one in ponderable. this is an organizat
%, is at the all-time high for the gop during obama's presidency. just 26% see the party in a positive light. the gop lost the most ground with self described republicans. the tea party also has its lowest rating ever, positive views of the tea party, they have dropped to just 23%. joining me now while i get a glass of water after those numbers, nbc news senior political editor mark murray. listen. not to chew on again, but mark, why i like the segments is based on numbers. questions to what we assume are average voters out there and getting a glimpse of what these people both feel about their own personal situations and what some might call the shenanigans in d.c. >> the context is very important here, tamron. this is after the fiscal cliff fight we had right over the new year and also comes after the tragic shootings in newtown, connecticut. and of course, sets up president obama's inauguration, officially comes on monday. and he will be confronting a public that's more pessimistic that doesn't have as high expectations as four years ago. this is a very different inauguration as our own co
be done and i hope it's being done right now by the obama people and by the democratic party people because of if that work is done and if those people do turn out to vote, then ted cruz is wrong. ted cruz could still be right if they vote in the numbers they voted in 2010. >> jennifer: if the president and all of us learned anything from 2010, democrats stay home and you get what we got today in congress. thank you michael, so much for joining me inside "the war room." love your columns. in the 34 days since the tragedy in newtown 34 days, the number now, 1,013 americans have died as a result of gun violence. 34 days. that's the latest rough estimate from "slate" magazine. 17-year-old tyrone lawson is one of them. become reports the senior at chicago's morgan park high school was shot twice in the back outside of chicago state university last night. he was attending a high school basketball game and the basketball game was moved to the university site because of past violence between the two high schools. so a fight broke out after the game. shots were fired in the parking lot. tyr
house. and it's how well think party holding the white house has governed, whether or not the sitting president is running again. so if barack obama wants to extend -- which is very difficult, have three democratic presidents in a row, it is all going to depend on his success in governing and leading the country. if he is success, and comes out as a very popular president who has achieved something, then there's an excellent chance that the democrats are capture another term in the white house. if he doesn't. if he leaves as a failed president like george w. bush, then we'll get a change in party power in 2016 and this is true regardless of the identity of the democratic nominee. i think barack obama would very much like to be one of those rare presidents who passes on his success to another candidate of his own party. that doesn't happen very often. it happened with reagan and bush, and before that you have to go back to roosevelt and truman. >> michael: yeah, i agree with you, i just sort of see his relationship with biden as hilary as compelling political th

out in front in opposing president obama on gun safety. so what happened? why is the gop the party of guns over people? our guests are congresswoman carolyn mccarthy, a democrat of new york, and cynthia tucker, a pulitzer prize-winning columnist. thank you both for joining us. you have been in this fight for so long, congresswoman mccarthy. i have to ask you, is there something out there in the water that's changed or are we confronting the old power of the nra? >> well, certainly we are confronting them. we'll always be able to confront them, but this time is different, and i think that the american people are realizing on how radical they actually are. you know, when you see the polls, most people in america support what we're trying to do, even nra members, so that this time is different. i think it's a combination of the gun violence that we have seen over the last couple years, but what happened in connecticut, that went over the top. we had a hearing yesterday afternoon, and i have to tell you, victims that i have been working with for years from virginia tech, from aurora, i

if they side with the president of the united states think about what president obama has done for the progressive movement in this country in the democratic party. how can you not stand with him on this? how much more information do these lawmakers need? have we not covered it enough? other democratic senators with high ratings from the national rifle association have also refused to say if they support the president's package. max baucus of montana, senator heidi heitkamp of north dakota, senator johnson of south dakota. senator donnelley of i7d ind. senator begich of alaska, senator manchin of west virginia, senator tester of montana. however, senator mark warner spoke out in favor of the president's plan and said he believes it has bipartisan support. those senators all have a or a-plus ratings from the national rifle association. reid has a b rating. these senators know they will lose their high rating and maybe become a target with the nra if they vote for a sensible assault weapons ban. you see, we had the assault weapons ban back in 1994, but we're so screwed up in wash
and not people talking on a 3:00 a.m. show on fox news. they should not be talking about impeaching obama. it is silly. it is ridiculous. although i will say on the other hand every time one party does well in an election i don't think we do it much, but the democrats do it. suddenly they are writing our obituary. you have to change everything. >> very good point. >> when the liberals lost they never did the article, oh you are out of touch. and don't forget they have more governors. >> so it is not like they are in trouble. but, bill, our viewers are dyeing to hear your thoughts on the republican party and you actually dying. >> what is it, viewers? do you want to hear me or kill me? this is a retreat, two words, trust will fas, -- trust falls, trust tall falls. unless you invite chris christie. >> and maybe the people -- >> i have done so many retreats when i was in publishing, and it always ended up something bad happening. we did the dress as a sumo wrestler thing. and i remember doing that in a park with somebody -- i was at men's health. it was somebody from by sick ling -- bicyclin

believe he's voted for president obama in the last two election cycles. >> sean: twice. >> i think for him to go on national television and smear an entire party with that kind of baseless attack is beneath him. it's beneath the service that he provided to the nation and i was frankly sorry to see it because it's clearly inaccurate and not the kind of smear you'd expect from somebody like general powell. >> sean: well said and disappointing. i was disappointed when i heard it. >> exactly. >> sean: ronald reagan and bush 41 and bush 43 and the republican party, he has now moved to the left, obviously, not supporting policies that are conservative and it seems like a political attack. >> no, i think it clearly was. look, sean, you know better than anybody, this nation is at a crossroads and we're facing a huge challenge internationally, in terms of the threats posed to us from terrorist organizations like al-qaeda and a usage threats at home in terms of having a president that's unwilling to deal with the fiscal issues, unwilling to deal with the debt crisis and addicted to more spending and
, julie. the biggest party in america kicks off this week, from beyonce to kelly clarkson, celebrities are flocking to the district. while president obama's second inauguration will be slightly smaller than his first, the tickets for the event are the hottest in town. we turn to senior editor at capital file magazine. tony and i were saying, you have the best gig in town, especially now. >> i do. it's a great, great time. we're excited to see all the things happening in the city. we're really on display, the nation's capital. time to go. time to party. >> what is the headline here? we've been saying it's not going to be as grand as it was. the official ball, or the balls the president and the first lady are expected to go to, much smaller. like two this year. >> two. but they will have quite a few people. armed service members will be at one of them, and there will be more than 30,000 people at another one. >> wow. >> they're not very small gigs. however, there are a few things happening around town. tickets for those two sold out early for the public. there are great things happening.
because even though he had support from his party in both houses of congress, that was the one he was not able to do. caller: i would ask your guest to address mr. obama's promise which drew in the young voters that he was going to be great unifier. i would contend he has deliberately set out to polarize the country and that 51% of americans voted for him but that the other 49% of americans that voted for him feel like he is sticking his tongue out at us and giving us the finger. i feel we are more polarized than we were and i see that as a promise greatly broken. guest: in fact, there is a promise to the fact that we do have the promise broken. we represented by his promise to bring both parties together to pass an agenda. as you say, there has not been success at that. there is a very robust debate about who is to blame but in terms of actions -- i have not seen him stick out his tongue or flipping the bird at anyone but i can say event this is definitely a very polarized place. that is a promise broken. host: here is a tweet - guest: i think more than ever. this is the kind of

a positive development for our economy. the first point i want to make, when the two parties can get together on some of these issues this and that things can happen. with respect to poverty specifically, i think it is a well-kept secret of mitt romney and barack obama advocated indexing the minimum wage to the rate of inflation. it does not matter now, because we have no inflation, but if the economy gets better and we do not index the minimum wage to inflation people at the bottom of the income spectrum are going to lose ground rather than gain ground in the recovery that is a modest sensible thing we should all agree on. >> that is pretty good for a dean. i'll give you all the leeway you need to do that. i wonder if you can help me imagine what a white house conference to eradicate poverty with the left and right present to talk about ideas that could work if they could agree on -- give me a sense of at this moment what some of the ideas on the table might be that could get this moving, and you can respond to what you wanted to earlier. >> part of the challenges that most of the experts wh
